My kid started from the last two months of her TK here and now in K. Both teachers so far are great teachers. TK teacher is nice and warm, which made my kid be welcomed and adapted to the new environment quickly given our international move. Her teacher now is K, room 3, Mrs. Chang is very experienced and passionate in teaching kids. I can’t imagine how much time she volunteered to spend on making everything organized and communicated with parents timely and clearly. Reading, writing, creativeness and mental wellness were greatly addressed in different ways. Class activities were organized super well to have kids build sharing and caring spirits. My kid enjoys her school everyday.

overall Foster City elementary has better facilities than the other two elementary schools in Foster city. Other than that, it is hard to tell the difference among schools.

We're so happy with this school. Our son is very happy here, his teacher is fantastic. Very patient with him. This school is also very diverse, the PTA organizes a lot of activities, the kids go on several great field trips. It is a great school.

This is not a good school. The women in the admin office are bitter and rude. The current principal is ineffective and weak. This has been a negative experience all around since my child started going here. The parking in front for parents is a joke! You have to get there at least 30 min before the bell to even stand a chance of parking anywhere near where your child exits. They spent all that time and money renovating, only to create a bs school. Terrible place.

My son's kindergarted experience was fantastic. No problems there. But since the start of 1st grade..nothing but issues. Classes are over filled, teachers seem tired and not very enthusiastic about teaching. Books are ridiculously old. Homework is tedious work sheets. I don't really blame the teachers so much. I know they come with loads of experience, and maybe the change to common core is straining on them. I really don't think they have support from above. My main concern right now is bullying and I am getting NO WHERE with the assistant principle unless I stay on her with constant emails. Three months now and no resolve and I get all of my information from the interventions from my son. No one from the school calls me. My son also states that when he is in the office he hears the office staff talking about other students and their parents, and not in a good way. My son is extremly observant and reads people very well. He even stated "they really don't care mom...". Some of the staff does not seem to be very culturally competant or sensitive in how their actions or words may affect students of color.
